Caritas Hospital

CARITAS HOSPITAL established in 1962, is a gift of the Knanaya Catholic Archdiocese of Kottayam to the nation. It upholds the motto KENOTIC LOVE SAVES LIFE. What motivates the community to accept this formidable challenge is the mandate received from its Lord Jesus Christ, who wanted every human being to enjoy the fullness of joy and abundance of life. The Catholic health ministry is spiritually centered on holistic care that sustains and improves the health of individuals and communities. Caritas Hospital marks an important step in the evolution of health care in Central Kerala. Caritas Hospital has grown from a 50-bedded hospital to 655-bed strength hospital. Caritas is accredited by NABH since 2015 and is the first NABH accredited Hospital in Kottayam District. ISO 9001:2015 certified for quality management system and healthcare procedures. Over the years, Caritas has grown to become one of the best healthcare providers in Central Kerala with 34-plus clinics and departments. We have a well-equipped multi-organ transplantation centre (kidney, heart, lungs and liver). Caritas also stands apart for being one of the hospitals with the highest volume of patients in Central Kerala. Equipped with a major research centre, teaching institutions, Caritas Hospital pioneers procedures that save lives and alleviate pain and suffering, especially of those who cannot afford adequate treatment.
